Highlights of this episode

1:23 – Knowing your options: feeling overwhelmed or confused by the finances involved is normal. Taina and Marika break down what happens during those initial meetings and why it’s important to put a full financial plan in place early on.

3:50 – Putting figures into context: should you keep the property, take more of a pension, or secure a larger sum of cash? A financial planner can help demystify the figures.

6:40 – Blindsided by separation versus what is realistic: making those big financial decisions, for example, do you know if you can afford to keep the family home long-term? Cashflow modelling can help untangle the options to put these big decisions into perspective so you can forecast your finances.

13:30 – Being in control and finding the best route for you: with heightened emotions it’s key to be confident and pragmatic about the future and what’s affordable. The decisions made during the divorce process are life-changing and have long lasting consequences.
